The 46'er, Heaven on Earth
The "46'er", named for those that have mastered the highest peaks in the Adirondacks, keeps with the tradition of 46'ers. She is well equipped, well oriented and surrounded by beauty, leaving you never wanting to return home.
The chalet is completely remodeled with hard wood floors, skylights, new kitchen and bathroom. Special aesthetic touches like the twig work rails are combined with comfortable furnishings and the feel of a new house that we invite you to make your home while visiting the Adirondacks.
The chalet features:
A Private Master Bedroom with a Queen Size Bed, A Loft with Twin Beds and A Queen Size Futon in the living room for sleeping two adults or three children. All new mattresses and bed linens.
The chalet is really special in that it is comfortable for a family or a group of friends, yet still intimate for a couple alone.
It's a great place just 'to be'- sitting up in the loft in the comfy oversized chair, reading a good book while listening to the gentle rain on the skylight or in the living room snuggled on the couch by the fireplace warming your soul. (At the 46'er your firewood is cut, stacked and ready to go).
Or perhaps you prefer sitting on the meditation pillow, listening to transcendental music while receiving the healing energy of this magical place. There is always a soft throw or a blanket at hand to wrap yourself in and many beautiful pillows to arrange for that 'just perfect fit'.
In the winter, you'll appreciate the hot water radiators for warming-up your towels or drying wet mitts and socks. The new boiler provides (truly!) unlimited hot water for showers.
Unlike just another impersonal rental property, you'll find the warmth and comfort of home with soft cushy towels, down pillows and comforters. The kitchen is well equipped, making it easy to fix a simple breakfast or a Thanksgiving Feast.
When your spirit moves you beyond the chalet, so much awaits!
First you'll encounter the large, wrap around deck which sports Adirondacks chairs and an outdoor dining area, and sometimes chickadees that will eat from your hands. You may not get much further for awhile. Many guests fall into the hammock for a snooze or fire up the grill to cook the trout they caught.
The hot tub invites you for that romantic or relaxing dip after the day on the mountain.
In the evening, there is the stone ring campfire for all the stories of the day.
Behind the chalet there are trails for walking, hiking, snow shoeing and cross-country skiing. You may use our canoe to explore one of the many waterways nearby. We also have two bicycles available for you. Community tennis courts, ball parks, Lake Everest Beach with live summer concerts are just minutes away. If you wish, there are stables and miles of woodland trails for riding. Lessons available for English, Western and Polo.
You can climb the walls of Wilmington Notch, taking in the most breathtaking aerial views of the valley below. For the most exhilarating experience, You've Got To Go! for the dip in the Copperas Pond after climbing.
The chalet is nestled on a hillside facing Whiteface and Stephenson Ranges. Whiteface Olympic Mountain, which is two miles away, offers the ultimate in winter sports. It was voted the Best Ski Center in the North East! In the Summer time, you can enjoy the thrill of mountain biking on the special trail system. In the fall, many enjoy the Gondola for leaf peeping.
Less than a mile away there is the West Ausable River, world famous for its trout fishing. In Wilmington, it shoots rapidly through a deep, granite walled gorge, creating the most dramatic and mesmerizing flume - our favorite spot.
The village of Wilmington is one of the best kept secrets in the Adirondacks. It's off the main track, giving you the pristine natural beauty of the Park while providing easy access to amenities.
Within minutes of the chalet, we have dining experiences ranging from hamburgers to gourmet fare. The village provides a grocery store, tackle shop, and specialty shops like The Candy Man Chocolate Factory. Just minutes from the town center, you enter The North Pole with Santa's Workshop. For those that want to experience the breathtaking views from Whiteface Mountain but don't prefer to hike, there is the beautiful, winding Memorial Highway leading to the summit just west of the village.
Lake Placid Village with all that it has to offer is just ten beautiful miles away on the most picturesque road of the Adirondacks. Here you can enjoy shopping, dining, arts and crafts, museums, The Olympic Center, golf, horse shows, movies, festivals, nightlife, ... or "in short" - hustle and bustle of this special, lively Olympic Village.
Located ten minutes from the skiing at Whiteface Mt. and twenty-five minutes to the tourist attractions of Lake Placid, The 3 Bears Cabin, is a tranquil getaway location that is surrounded by as much excitement as you would wish to explore.
